EDGE is a green building certification system for new residential and commercial buildings in emerging markets. An innovation of International Finance Corporation (IFC), EDGE is a fast and easy to use mass market transformation tool. It empowers developers and builders to quickly evaluate and compare estimated costs for design strategies targeting reductions in energy use, water use, and embodied energy in materials. Cost effective strategies integrated into the project design are verified by an EDGE Auditor and certified by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).
As a global certification provider, GBCI administers EDGE certification in nearly 120 countries around the world and is the exclusive certification provider for all EDGE buildings in India. View the full list of countries where GBCI offers EDGE certification at edge.gbci.org.
